Kate Middleton has had a busy week of surprise appearances.

The Duchess of Cambridge appears to recovering well from hyperemesis gravidarum and made her second appearance at a royal engagement on Wednesday after taking a break to heal from her extreme morning sickness. Kate was joined by husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry to attend the graduation of more than 150 Coach Core apprentices at West Ham United's London Stadium.

And in true Kate style, she did her own form of recycling - wearing a blue double breasted blazer by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, which we first saw in red in February of this year. This time around, the expectant mother was sporting a much shorter hairstyle, but also chose the same black suede boots by Russell & Bromley and a pair of heart drop diamond and gold earrings by Kiki McDonough.

Among the famous faces involved in the sessions was tennis coach Judy Murray, the mother of Andy and Jamie Murray. She said it was "amazing" for William and Kate to be at the event, adding: "For them to be here is a huge inspiration for the young people."

She said she spoke to the Duchess about her children and how parents can develop coordination skills at a young age, including playing with balloons. Ms Murray stuck with the theme of West Ham - whose fans sing "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles", adding: "I was telling them to try bubbles as well."

She said: "The Prince and the Duchess are very sporty, both of them, and I'm sure they will be keen for their kids to enjoy sport as well." Before the graduation ceremony William, Kate and Harry, attended a reception to meet key figures who have helped deliver the programme, as well as hearing about future plans for Coach Core.

The scheme, designed by the Royal Foundation, is designed to teach apprentices, aged between 16 and 24, technical sports skills alongside coaching, with an emphasis on employability.

Meanwhile, it's all go at Kensington Palace with Prince George (four), Princess Charlotte (two) and another one on the way. And William revealed that his eldest child is just like any other toddler who loves Disney movies, in particular The Lion King. At the Paddington 2 event in London earlier this week, William was asked about George's favourite tv shows by a sweet child.

"He quite likes the Lion King he's watched that quite a few times. He's watched Octonauts. He has watched some Lego movies as well. Trying to keep him off the television is hard work," the Duke said.

George clearly has excellent taste, in particular his penchant for Octonauts, which is produced by Irish company Brown Bag Films.
